Perl Jobs are not running from crontab

Dear All,

I am having a shell script which runs perl jobs.
The script is starting the perl jobs when it is executed manually from the command line , but when the same script runs from crontab it is not starting the perl jobs.
I have these things in the begining of the script

. /etc/profile

export MDX_HOME=/home/entsms
source $MDX_HOME/.bash_profile
export PERL5LIB=/home/entsms/program
export USER=entsms
export ORACLE_TERM=386
export LOGNAME=entsms
export ORA_NLS=/oracle/product/102/db_1/nls/data/
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.0_03
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export ORACLE_SID=mdx5p
export ORACLE_BASE=/oracle
export ORACLE_HOME=/oracle/product/102/db_1
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/oracle/product/102/db_1/lib:/lib

The issue has almost certainly been solved in one of these LQ threads/posts.
